Session Overview

Children and adolescents with cancer and other catastrophic or chronic illnesses are at increased risk for sleep disturbances. Mechanisms of sleep disturbance in this population include illness factors, treatment-induced symptoms, psychological and emotional challenges, and environmental disruptions. Most interventions to address sleep problems in children and adolescents have been validated in otherwise healthy samples of children. Tailored interventions at both the individual and environmental level will be discussed.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, attendees should be better able to:

  • Describe the relationship of chronic illness to sleep disturbances in children and adolescents
  • List mechanisms of sleep disturbance in youth with illness
  • Select interventions for sleep and fatigue in outpatient and inpatient settings
